<b><a href=https://form.jotform.com/212795081587163 target="_blank">Help us provide the most useful data by completing our ODP User Feedback Survey for Summer Meal Programs Data</a></b><p>

<b>About the Dataset</b><br>

This dataset contains <b>contact and program participation information for summer meal sites approved by TDA to operate between March 2020 and September 2020 (Program Year 2020). </b> Summer meal programs typically operate June through the end of August. <p>

In March 2020, USDA began allowing flexibility in nutrition assistance program policies in order to support continued meal access should the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) impact meal service operation. Sites participating in these flexibilities are indicated in the <b><i>COVID Meal Site or Oct-May Claims columns.</b></i> For more information on the waivers implemented for this purpose, please visit our website at <a href=http://www.SquareMeals.org target="_blank">SquareMeals.org</a>. <p>

<b>About Dataset Updates</b><br>

TDA aims to post new program participation data by April 1 of the active program year. Due to the short duration of the summer meal programs, updates to the program participation dataset will occur every two weeks until the end of August. <p>

All TDA datasets will have a final active update 90 days after the close of the program period. Datasets will be updated at six months and one year from the close of program period before becoming archived. <b>Any data posted during the active update schedule is subject to change.</b><p>
